Dealing with any psychological issue is an extremely complicated process, and there will not be one perfect approach to deal with any particular issue. Not only will the specific origin of a psychological condition be extremely important in identifying the best approach to treatment, but each individual is also likely to respond differently to different types of treatment.
As such, having as many tools at your disposal as possible will undoubtedly ensure that you are far more successful at treating a wide range of different psychological issues and that you will be far more confident in choosing the very best approach to each individual case.
As such, EMDR training is going to be very beneficial for any mental health professional. Not only is it another string to the bow to help one to treat a wide variety of cases more effectively, but it is also one of the most effective and least stressful forms of treatment for the majority of patients whose psychological problems are a direct result of past trauma.
Whilst many psychological treatments can be extremely traumatic themselves or can have long lasting effects in their own right, EMDR is a far more gentle way to help re-wire the brain and in turn ensure that an individual can deal with past trauma more effectively and find resolution that allows them to move forward without the baggage that trauma can bestow on a person. This type of PTSD training gives practitioners the ability to offer closure and help an individual move forward without having to even talk about the trauma they have experienced, something that can allow an individual to feel far more comfortable with the process.
Therefore, training in EMDR techniques could allow you to approach even the most severe psychological cases armed with far more tools, and ones that can reduce the pain and emotional upheaval that addressing trauma can so often cause.
